Education for Ministry is a program designed for laity to provide theological study and reflection rooted in the Scriptures and traditions of the Church. 

Participants meet once a week for 1.5 to 2 hours. Reading the textbook, the Bible and other works, doing the assignments  etc. will take more time on your own.  What each student takes away from EfM depends on how much time and energy are devoted to the course.

Each year of the four year course is 36 weeks long and can start in either September of January. In either case, there are no classes over the summer, and we take a break for Christmas.

More information can be found here: or for information on EfM in our diocese:  You  may also contact David Harrison ( or 902-923-2902) he is the Diocesan EfM Coordinator and an EfM Online mentor.
